Raspberry Pi 2 Wifi Dongle

Hi,

I have installed Venus OS on a Rasberry Pi 2 but it does not recognise any of my wifi dongles. Is there a way of installing suitable drivers? I remember doing this for Raspbian a while ago before it recognised them automatically.

I have a TP-Link TL-WN725N and a TL-WN723N dongles.

Regards

Paul

@paulbloggs Venus OS works with specific WiFi dongles only, same for CCGX as it is for Rpi
